hurricane sandy is proof we need a powerful federal government, the fema to provide emergency management. the just makes sense. disaster across state lines who but the fed can help? the new york times declared a big star requires big government. very few politicians are skeptical. it is a relief to turn to ron paul. doctor, it is of myths that we need fema? >> i think so. it causes more harm than good. we handle plus a disasters 204 years before we had fema i have taken this position for a long time since the was first in office and i kept getting reelected because people were tired of fema. locked into insurance and it is a bureaucracy. they just takeover. john: across the fed line they have to have rolled? >> no. we should have real insurance. it causes many of the problems because they say you have to have insurance. they will noo sell it. that tells you it is too dangerous. soap rich people are subsidized by the poor people they have a good time the houses are washed away. john: before the storm the president held a press conference that the red cross. >> we are here because the red
, now, homeland security secretary janet napolitano did tour the area yesterday with fema, promising resources. governor andrew cuomo of new york promising $100 million for relieve for these victims of hurricane sandy, and even this morning, announcing there will be a temporary deployment of gas trac trucks to help with the shortage. the residents are desperate and i'm joined by a staten island resident, good morning to you. >> good morning, how are you? >> reporter: tell me, what have you been dealing with? you are all fired up. >> what is going on, we are stuck on this avenue, and a lot of neighbors are and we have no electricity, no phones, no cell phones and we can't get in touch with fema. we tried to put on-line applications and most of us don't have internet access... >> reporter: you checked the internet and you said, i don't have internet. >> i don't have it and, i have been chasing fema and they told me to go to susan wagner and go down by the beach, here and now i found out, we are supposed to be here at 9 o'clock and now they are... >> reporter: you are chasing them aroun
of the fema assistance to get people moved or get them rentals. we're working to get more people in these areas, thing rs starting to get in there. but the two priorities are the power restoration to get power back on. we're going to refer back to the utilities. we got some of the equipment today. we're moving equipment from the west coast to the east coast. you can't drive it fast enough, so the departments are now flying utility trucks and crews to the west coast. some began landing this evening. that's going to continue as we bring in more resources to support utilities. >> when you see the pictures, we've seen this in several areas. when you look at the devastation and homes completely gone, homes just ripped off their foundations. is this what you expected or worse? >> no, this is why the evacuation orders were issued. with storm surge, which is what we get with these type of systems, people tend to think of this as what you see from hurricanes like we saw in mississippi and other storms. when this happens, that's the power of that water. it's not going to be like it's flood
. >> no one else has been here. i have not heard from fema, the coast guard, n one. it is startling. >> very angry and fed up. what are , is this america? i don't know. i don't know. i don't like it. we are going downhill. >> i came here four or five years ago, expected we came here for a better life, opportunity, and this is what we come from. this is ridiculous. not how it is supposed to be. gerri: it wasn't just residents. take a look at the front page of "the new york post." an abuse of power, there were two generators being used for the marathon to power the media tent. a third backup generator that wasn't being used. for more on this, joined by adam shapiro in staten island where he has been reporting all day long, and editor-in-chief of runner's world which follows all of this. i will start with you, what has been the response from people you have been talking to all day long about this idea of having a marathon in the wake of sandy? >> people wanted it canceled. when it was announced was being canceled i asked police officers what they felt about it and they responded in unison "goo
in action after superstorm sandy might flip that argument on its head. fema put 1900 people on the ground so far. it has made more than half a million meals. given out more than 600,000 liters of water and thousands of blankets and cots to anyone who needs them. will this quick reaction by the government change the mind of any voters and help president obama? joining me democratic strategist chris hahn, brad blakeman, fox news contributor, and former deputy assistant to president george w. bush. chris i have to admit, government is looking pretty good the last couple days here. i don't know. do you think it is having impact on voters out there? >> look, it is hard to argue that fema is not necessary. also hard to argue that fema performs much better under a democratic president than it did under republican president. melissa: you made a jump from that one. >> look, bottom line the republican platform this entire summer, government bad, government bad, government bad. melissa: right. >> if you look paul ryan budget, it desmates fema. we need fema to coordinate between the states. that's why w
and there have been some shelters set up a little less than a mile from here run by the red cross and fema and janet napolitano was on the ground. those are all important steps at the very least symbolically for the residents of this neighborhood who have felt cut off. they're still kind of angry that it took so long to get here, but fema and the red cross are on the ground right now, so that's a positive step. the thing to remember, the fema facility, red cross, they're about a mile away from here. a lot of the people in this neighborhood don't necessarily know they're there because they have no tv, no internet, no phone service. little cell service, so word of mouth isn't getting around to quite as many people as maybe as those who could use that facility over there. so that's still a challenge for the red cross and fema to serve people inside this neighborhood and get aid to them when people don't necessarily know they're only about a mile away. >> thank you very much. as we said, so many were frustrated, but they're there now trying to help. a lot of people there have trouble communica
, i quote, an absurd notion. they say because big government is better, whether it is fema or a new department of business that president obama wants too create about which we can talk more if you have time. but bottom line, fema has a terrible track record, most big federal bureaucracies do, they come up with their man made inside of the beltway, which does not necessarily fit when applied to a state or local community, any time there is a difference of opinion with between the local guys and federal government, the feds -- 92 bu92. neil: but they all welcome fema help. >> when it involves money. do you think that chris christie would have said that if it are not for the money. neil: that is his acknowledgment that government works ? >> no, that is his acknowledge am he could use all federal money he can get. this is a political statement, on part of chris christie, and everyone is trying to be as friendly as they can before the election. they don't want to be seen as using this for political purposes. neil: you say, the times leaves you wondering whether private enterprise can wor
better than anybody about fema and about the red cross. is he going to tell us about that at the bottom of the hour. in the meantime three days before we do the final voting, election day just three days away, the candidates are out in the battleground states. we're going to talk about that one thing that the obama campaign has not talked about, even though members of fox news team have tried to get him on the record, mr. president, what did you know about what happened in benghazi, libya on september the 11th, 2012? people aren't asking that. we're asking. we're not getting any answers. but today we have got another smoking gun because the white house before had said, you know, we didn't really have any real warnings of trouble there another smoking gun. more warnings. >> gretchen: apparently they even talked to suspending operations completely at the consulate. you know there were two locations in benghazi. hut consulate and then you had the cia operation house which people, i guess, didn't know was a cia operation house which is about a mile away. and they were talking and in the day
in queens, new york, a blaze that destroyed more than 80 homes in one ommunity. fema officials say, sandy is not anywhere near being over either end as of right now this storm is moving inland, and dumping more than foot of snow in west virginia, tod at 3 feet predicted some regions. what is left of hurricanes and the remains powerful, and tonight it threatens the midwest. officials in chicago warning people to keep their distance from lake michigan where high nds are expected to create waves reaching as much as 24 feet in height. meteorologist calling sandy a once-in-a-lifeti storm with some experts predicting a $20 billion in damages as the now more than 20 states have been hit by the super store. tonight we will be bringing you up today, of course, the presidentialampaign which has come as you might expect, been thrown into disarray. both candid it's scrapping their event schedules and polling agencies such as gallops suspending their operations, at least in terms of the daily tracking. governor romney today focused on fund-raising for the victims of the deadly storm while president o
to let you know the political is reporting tonight that as far as disaster money in the bank had fema the mafia currently has about $8 billion on hand to respond to this hurricane. so there will be billions out there. we know this is -- right now one of the preliminary estimates that 10-20000000000. so fema does apparently have about $8 billion for its disaster relief.lly we have gotn confirmation from the romney campaign that governor romney u.s. canceled his campaign events will be holding a hurricane relief advance in ohio tomorrow. back to you. neil: thank you very much. we are getting word that of new jersey right now that holes was of the midsection, the northern section of new jersey are without power. by the way, that would include my wife and family, but it might be my wife's way of saying i really cannot be bothered watching a. al pretend it is a power outage. in all seriousness, that is the case. that would affect up to a million new jersey is, if you had said no 100,000 now without power in connecticut, likely upwards of 2 million in new york. you could add it up and see h
sure people can get food. >> as many as a million new yorkers may need help. fema is flying in food, supplies, and personnel. >> we're all in this together. we are desperately trying to help everybody. we're trying to prioritize. >> across the river in hoboken, new jersey, national guard rescues continue. up and down the devastated jersey shore, natural gas service being cut with utility crews scrambling to plug hundreds of explosive leaks. on norg city, staten island, all the worst that sandy brought is all coming home. >> total, total devastation. i live a mile from the beach. how did that water get to my house? >> and there has not been as much attention on staten island as there should have been. so much heart ache out there. the 88 people who lost their lives in the storm, 13 in the city. two were young boirks brothers who might have survived. that's what their mom says. if her story bears out, it wouldn't have taken a miracle either. just a neighbor doing the right thing. gary tuckman has their story. >> reporter: a florida explorer on the side of the street in the staten isla
, things of that nature are all freed up. just got this from the white house, fema is going door-to-door, people might need assistance at the coast guard and taking the lead to identify hazardous floodwaters. not exactly the cleanest water on earth. how do you dispose of that and also fema will support any request from state officials who need help with polling places next week, only a few days from the federal election. the irs is granting taxpayers affected by the hurricane until november 7th if they were supposed to file returns or payments for today. the fdic telling financial institutions if they are having problems with their reporting timeline they can contact them as well. campaign continues tomorrow. mitt romney will be in virginia. president obama back on the campaign trail. green bay, wisconsin, boulder, colorado, las vegas. melissa: thanks for that report. ashley: let's get back to check the markets. the dow up by 35 points and have been in this range for a while. nicole petallides on the nyse. big movers in the wake of sandy. nicole: we will follow sandy at aftermath
from fema, the coast guard, no one. and it's just puzzling. i understand there are worse case scenarios down at the beach, or they're still digging out bodies, but it's just amazing that nothing's been done here. >> reporter: now on the scene red cross, fema as well as the city. they have brought in food, they have brought in water, they have brought in generators, but again, many people here say it's simply not enough, and it simply took too long. as for the power, there are still about 55,000 people on staten island waiting for electricity. a big part of the problem here is that they get their electricity from overhead wires, and con ed has said those type of repairs are going to take longer, possibly as much as one other week. and lastly, many here mourning the deaths of the 19 who died. many people died on staten island than in any other borough in new york city. two of the youngest victims, connor and brandon moore, ages 4 and 2. they were swept away, they were in an suv with their mother, glenda. the suv overrun with water for more than a day there was a frantic search. yesterday
, state police, fema, fire departments, basically everyone who could possibly be involved, and that is the goal to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. the reality is, though, that there's 1.1 million customers for the long island power authority, over 900,000 are without power so it's almost 90% of the people on long island are without power. there's hundreds and hundreds of trees down, still hundreds of traffic lights out there and flooding. every effort is being made, there is progress being made and some power has already been restored but it's brutal. this is really our version of katrina. i'm not saying any two tragedies are alike but i've been touring the south shore today in my district and massapequa, lindenhurst, what you're showing is typical of many areas on long island. fema the county executives are meeting with fema to set up exact plans as to how recovery will take place. workers are coming in from all over the country to restore the power but it's a tough haul. i don't want to give anyone any false hope. everything that can be done is being do
there was such a name for a team, but honestly to new york, and we need them very badly. fema has also said set up a hotline for individuals. the fema hotline is (##8)121-3622 i have been involved in disaster. i have seen all types of disasters. i was in hurricane andrew in homestead florida. i was in the red river floods. the midwest floods, entire cities wiped away. the earthquakes in california. i have to tell you what i saw last night. what went on and the south shore of long island. they were some of the worst conditions i have seen. the hudson river, downtown manhattan, it was literally pouring into the ground zero site. would such a force that we were worried about the structure of the pit itself. joe and i just happened to run into each other in downtown manhattan. when i tell you the hudson river was pouring into the brooklyn battery tunnel like a river at high velocity, it was a frightening sight. while the hudson was coming over from the west from the, the east river was coming over from the east. the amount of water and the acceleration and the rising of the river was really frightenin
that this is the forgotten bureau. i did see today, though, that fema is now on the scene. i that you fema actually visiting some of the homeowners. i also saw the red cross here today. a red cross truck drove down the street, blaring through a loud speaker that there was going to be the delivery of meals twice a day starting tomorrow. also i saw the nypd on patrol in this location and just a short time ago was the secretary of homeland security, janet napolitano, and she explained why getting help has taken so long. >> we have been prioritizing getting generators to places like hospitals and nursing homes where the needs are greatest. places where, for example, our first responder cars need to be able to fill up with gasoline so they need pumps there, generator pumps to pump the gasoline so the fire trucks and police cars still operate. so that has been the focus for the first couple of days. >> the situation here, though, still dire. right now the death toll just on staten island alone, 20 lives, many expect that as this recovery effort continues, the death toll is only going to increase. >> david lee mil
it is the red cross and fema. fema was knocking on doors. [talking over each other] neil: what were they doing when they were knocking on doors? >> giving people desperately needed information and letting them know what the processes and there were inspctors looking at how to assees the damage to the people can start to get some funding so they can start replacing in putting together their lives. going door-to-door is extremely important. a lot of things that happened today that, you know, need desperately to be done. we are still hurttng. it is a tremendous amount to be done. there are a lot of people are looking for answers and still haven't been gone through. the only backslapping that there should be at all is from the volunteers of the shelters and the hospital staff is working around the clock. and even con edison has been out there 24/7. i know there is power outages, but they are doing everything they ca. those are our heroes. the nypd and the first responders. they are unbelievable. neil: thank you, very much, congressman michael grimm. and it starts with folks are saying, wait a minu
, and you talk about the bipartisanship. we have seen how government has needed to step in by way of fema. romney has, you know, points of view in the primary, drudged up again by him saying fema is not necessary. then we talk about bipartisanship. you're seeing president obama standing right next to what was a number one surrogate for romney. so you know, in the end, has this natural disaster how kind of skewed or changed some of the opinions or sentiments about what romney has been saying about government not working, government being too intrusive? >> nobody's suggesting that governor christy still isn't indorsing and supporting governor romney. clearly, he has and continues to do so. the fact is -- of the matter is we don't want government, we want it to be efficient and positive and working for individuals, not against individuals. so governor romney never said we don't need fema. what he said it was the local and state governmental entities that were the first individuals in in a disaster. that's exactly true. >> let me say this, fredricka. let me say this as a member of the homelan
challenge by going to cut fema which is a made up talking point and it is silly the way we politicize every last detail of these things. i don't know if it will affect -- the biggest way will affect the campaign is in turn out. difficult for people to vote in these states and pennsylvania would be the most obvious place. dagen: the president gets to be just that for at least the last couple weeks. and prevent his opponent from going after in a way that he would. how does that not helped him? >> think about it as a resident of new york, the people who benefit from this politically are chris christie or michael bloomberg or seem to be doing things. i don't care what the president says and i don't think you do either and don't care what mitt romney has to say about this and local information, when will the subway run on time. and receive that kind of benefit. mitt romney could still attack the president about benghazi. dagen: these are super. states. connell: all of us talking about the storm the last few days, politics are starting -- i can tell from my twitter feed that it was all storm and
a lot of money to help all these states and also to try to manage fema, which, as yet, is not engaged. it's more the immediate response is at the local level, the fema is for the longer. he has done okay. there is is no criticism of that. >> bill: i don't think anybody should be sniping at him or romney. romney the same thing. he has got to be sympathetic. he doesn't have any power to do anything. he has got to show his concern. they both cancelled some appearances and all of that i won't sniping. what i would say if i were cynical but of course i'm not you can discount that. >> you are little bow beep. going forward, tomorrow is a hybrid news day. you will still have storm stuff but the story will deintensify and the political stuff will come back. and then on thursday, both romney and obama will regain, you know, they will start to campaign again. looking forward, i don't see sandy as a factor. >> no, i don't. it might have marginal effects. it does show the president is presidential. people expect that in a national emergency. that's not really stuff. you might say that if you look
operations center and then supporting whatever the fema initiatives are moving out from that in cross-discipline lines. >> thank you. mr. brig. >> as an operator of a distribution system, the stories are probably very similar. we have small emergencies every day, small, medium and even large, so the back-up systems, the screening, the ics structure, the spare parts, the communication, those muscles are flexed quite often. the big one is the one we design for and spend a lot of our time and energy preparing for. the big one for us is the design earthquake, it's the max credible earthquake, san an drais a is basically a 8.0, a repeat of the 1906 earthquake. some of the components can be tested, we can simulate an earthquake on some of these facilities as they are in design to make sure they can withdraw that level of earthquake. we're designing for an 8.0 and that's not what happened in japan in 2011. the earthquake that hit japan in 2011 was not what they were designing for and all the assumptions went out the window so that's food for thought. >> thank you. mr. angelus. >> at ve

to take money from new jersey, ship it to washington and have fema ship it back. stuart: doesn't federal money open up the spigots for private enterprise. if the feds are backing maybe reconstruction and backing the-- putting generators in place, if the federal government is backing that financially and with national resources, isn't that a help? >> yeah, but the federal government's broke. that money is taken from somewhere, it's taken from other people. if the people in new jersey decide, i need a generator, it's much better decided there, than the fema scandals are endless. after katrina they turned away free water from wal-martt stuart: okay, i'm in my house, a wife and two young kids and we have water up the bag stairs, i'm marooned in my bedroom and leaning out the window and saying, private enterprise help me, help me. no, i'm not going to say that. i'm going to say you cops, firefighters, please come get me, i need help this is an emergency. >> that's all local government. why would you want to send your money to washington for your local cops to help you? >> so that you only obj

have done a fantastic job preparing us, along with fema. i just talked to the national weather bureau a little while ago because we've been briefed every six, seven hours. they say they've never seen a hurricane become a nor'easter and then turn right into the coast. so it's no exaggeration, and it's 75 miles aore, and it's going to sit which makes it even more dangerous, and we're going to get four, six, seven inches of rain, and the ground will be swollen with water. and going to be particularly vulnerable. this is the real thing. please listen to the president, the governor of new jersey, new york, these are serious situations before us. this is not going to be simply a storm that goes by. it's going to go by because it's so big, it's going to go by and take many, many, many hours to get by. that's how big it is. so, we've already september a letter supporting the governor's request for federal disaster declaration and new jersey by congressman chris smith, who is the-- >> what happens during tomorrow's commute? are people going to attempt to go from new jersey here to manhattan? o
